That’s what the liberals think. All that “clean” electricity from solar panels, wind mills, and “outdated” hydroelectric power.

It looks like what those guys who cant make fender flares do, when they take a bunch of flat stock & go around the wheel well.

This will replace the Tacoma and Ridgeline as the only socially acceptable truck for rich white collar suburbanites who live in blue voting areas and don't need a truck to own.

I guess the Pontiac Aztek designers found a new gig at Tesla....


Sorry... I'm incorrect...

It looks like FabFours "updated" a Pontiac Aztek…..

Needs a matching M416-type trailer or appropriately styled Glastron or Hydrostream.

Wonder if it has any towing capacity, at that.

But you'd look even more goofy towing any normal trailer behind that thang.

Yet if circumstances and driving realities aligned, I would rock it.

Elon must've got really high and stumbled into his childhood bedroom and found a drawing he did of a "car of the future" when he was 8 and said "holy shit, this is awesome, I need to build it".

That's kind of what he did with his rocket. Gotta give him credit. BTW the truck is supposedly skinned with the same rockets hip metal.

Since an electric motor develops max torque at zero rpm, maybe OK if the control systems permit.

From a stats perspective, it's impressive. 0-60 in 2.9 seconds. 1/4 mile in 10 seconds flat and tows 14k lbs and presumably bulletproof stainless, with a 500 mile range.

Wonder what the range drops to towing a 10k trailer?


It's ugly AF, but I give him props for trying to shake up the stagnant overpriced truck market. Let's see what they can actually build the thing for. The model 3 never came close to the 35k price tag they advertised.

That roadster on the other hand. Got damn!
